    1. So my website Anime Gauge uses the MAL API to get pictures of a show. And at first everything is fine. It's working perfectly.

      Then one day, maybe 2 out of 100 shows will have a broken image. It seems MAL keeps changing the picture of their anime or the link of the picture.

      And today, voila! All of the anime images are broken. Did MAL decide to change all their anime pictures? Or change all the links? I don't even know why they keep changing them.

      I know MAL got hacked some time ago so they completely stopped people from using their API.

      I guess it's time to find a new API where I can get images for anime. I'm open to suggestions. Please comment below.

      UPDATE: 

      I managed to fix the broken images. It seems MAL changed their CDN url. I hope its the last they do that. So for now things are OK again. I'm still open to suggestions though for an API where I can get images of anime shows.

      So, it seems for the past 2 years I have been trying to land my dream job (not just preparing for it but applying too).  This has been a very very long and painful process, and at this point, I can confess...  I have rewritten my resume likely over 150 times in two years...and my cover letters...I have around 120 or so.  That's a lot of writing.  I remember the Dean of my school once saying "Anyone who claims to enjoy writing is a liar" and I raised my hand and said, "I actually like writing....sir....."  Haha!  Didn't earn me any points with that guy but ah well.  I do love writing stories.  I'm still working on my short (the one I meant to be around 15 pages long that has turned into 120 pages and counting) story on the side but writing all of these resumes and cover letters has given me a different perspective to writing.  I've even written resumes and cover letters for my friends (I tell all my friends they must expect to spend a minimum of 4-8 hours with me for a resume, and another 8-16 hours for a cover letter - the information you have to drag out of people to write these is insane) and darn....I make those things look great!  One of my friends worked as a cleaning lady for around 8 years, and in fast food for another 4 years and I made her resume sound very professional and geared it towards her dream warehouse job with the terminology I used to describe her work responsibilities.  Sometimes I wonder though, why it takes so long for me to comb through and improve my own work.  I likely turn a blind eye towards my own resume's flaws.

       

      In the past, I relegated updating my resume to a yearly task that I set for myself on my whiteboard in my office on New Years Day (along with all my other goals (you know, save X amount of money in savings, attain this or that certification, pay off that loan) things that I wanted to get done that year that I would mark off as I accomplished them).  I'm now realizing that doing this yearly, I probably missed some major additions I could've added before that now are just out of my grasp....not to mention...if you don't use it, you lose it (the magic resume touch that is).  Well, I've got the touch now.  Maybe I should open up a resume/cover letter writing service, charge people by the hour to do it.  :D  At least I'd make money from it.  So far I've been just giving it away!  I'm also a lot happier with my resume than I can say I was two years ago.  It is full of interesting information, not just generic stuff, that exemplifies my abilities and leads to enhancing others.  It's all building on itself.  I seem to be getting better at displaying pertinent information.  It isn't enough to just list the robots I've worked with.  Now I'm listing what their functions were as well as the software components.  Give the random HR representative a shred of information to understand what it means (HR rep must be the strangest job in the world - they get to pick people who get to see the hiring manager, and most of the time they have no understanding of what the person does or how they get the job done).  I'm still at a disadvantage.  Studies have shown ambitious men get three times the interviews that ambitious women do, but at least this resume is written proof of my abilities. 

       

      ~sighs~  Well, back to applying for the dream.  Some day I'll get there.  Not sure when.  If I keep trying though, my ticket's eventually got to be pulled.  This cat's not giving up the hunt that easily!

      Akatsuki no Yona

      Akatsuki no Yona is a Reverse Harem anime that features love, betrayal, and revenge. Three common points that everyone can surely relate to. Right of the bat, the plot is REALLY emphasized so the viewers can pretty much have a number of predictions on what's going to happen next.  It gives you the proper grasp of the anime and surprisingly enough it isn't boring to watch. I could compare it to a vacation wherein you would much enjoy the travel rather than the destination because the destination

      Kyoto Teramachi Sanjou no Holmes

      I tried to watch this anime since I have an interest in Mysteries. Of course it's already taken into account that this anime won't be the typical Detective Conan kind of Mystery genre that carries heavy and ingenious cases. Animation-wise the anime is good. Characters have a well put up background story. The plot was there and it obviously screams slice of life with a dash of mystery. This anime is light-hearted and may be enjoyable for some people that are fond of subtle mystery genres. Th

      Zombieland Saga

      When I started this anime, I had already seen a few trailers and clips, so I came in knowing that I already thought of it as oddly cute. I have honestly attempted to watch nearly all of the girls Idol Group anime I've heard about, so I wanted to look into this one as well. I wasn't disappointed initially. I was a little sad when they went down the typical type of path musically, but the show was adorable overall, and the music wasn't bad. I honestly wish that more of the music had followed their

      Violet Evergarden

      What do you think about a mannequin wanting to understand love? Let's take aside my biased rate for a moment and dive into this miraculous world. It's great graphics and story telling are certainly out of the ordinary. High Budget = High Quality All of my expectations have been fully satisfied. The story takes place in the early 20th century. Precisely in the aftermath of a war where the main character has been a part of. Unfortunately, the anime ended with a cliffhanger. What happened

      Soul Eater

      Soul Eater is one of my top ten favorite anime and I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a series that has action mixed with tons of comedy. Every character has their own quirks and personality. The comedy doesn't take away from the action and the series pretty much sticks to the story instead of running all over the place like a lot of newer anime tends to do. The graphics are done quite well and again it's definitely a unique style of artwork that I don't see in a lot of anime. I will sa

      Zombieland Saga

      Having finished this series earlier today,  I'm left asking the question "Is the glass half empty or half full?"  The premiere episode made me laugh out loud, but also made it seem likely that it's gimmicky sense of parody wouldn't stay funny through the entire season. In that sense the decision to explore the girls' backstories and personalities was definitely the right decision to extend the life of the series and led to some truly emotional moments (Lily's is the best example but Ai & Jun
